Immersing. Open. Potent. Shelter.

Rachel manages to interbraid both the intimate, microscope perspectives and crow’s eye view with her relaxed, self-aware and caring approach. Gaps are ogled and questions flounder unapologetically in the difficulty of the world. There is caution and caring and waxing and daring. I look deliriously forward to each new episode.

(I buy so many books d/t Commonplace.) (-it is wild that this is free-)

Come. Turn up the volume on the train, the sidewalk, the Champs Élysees, the fetid stairwell, the waiting room, the fire escape. Discover new poetry—new art—be invoked. Revisit the halls through which you thought you had already gone.

6/5 starbursts, sincerely marked.

P.S.,
An ‘interview’ is a stuffed cat. A ‘conversation’ will scratch your wrist, then eat your anniversary roses in the name of freedom.

Great Conversations

Rachel does more than interviews. She brings a level of openness to each conversation that’s admirable and aspirable. She has thoughtful questions which lead to great discussions. Plus my cat likes the pod

Fantastic

So good! I mean how often do you get to hear poets talk about their work, creative process, and life in this kind of depth?!? I came late to poetry via an MFA in fiction and a long break when my kids were small. This feels like a boon. I’ve been drinking down episodes daily and taking copious notes. I also became a patron. It’s such a generous and amazing resource for poets and people who love poetry.
